It's Christmas at Seattle's Best Coffee!

Walking into Seattle's Best Coffee is like walking into a Christmas-themed toyshop. Decorated with large alphabet toy blocks, toy train, and an SBC drummer boy, it all evokes the child in each of us, letting all those fond holiday memories surface. From the decorations, to the table stickers and menu boards, and even to the barista's uniform, everything is connected with that Christmas childhood cheer.

What better way to relish these yuletide memories than with the SBC Christmas drinks. Have them warm with the assortment of hot mocha beverages, or cold with SBC's Javakulas. Try all four holiday flavors to see which you like best.

Seattle's Best Cookies and Mint
Cookies and Mint

SBC's classic mocha has a blend of Oreo cookies and mint syrup covered with whipped cream and sprinkled with crushed Oreo cookies. The mint is but a mere whisper, and cookie lovers will appreciate the apparent texture and taste. I'm not a cookie person, but a mint aficionado, so the opposite would more likely appeal to me; somewhere along the lines of their Peppermint Pot (more mint less cookies), which unfortunately is no longer available.

Seattle's Best Gingerbest

SBC's white chocolate mocha is infused with gingerbread syrup, topped with whipped cream and a smattering of Christmas tree candy sprinkles. A gingerbread candy man peeks out from the cloud of cream. Think speculoos or cookie butter, albeit a subtle suggestion. The Javakula is too sweet for my taste, and if you want a less saccharine flavor, then go for the hot mocha version.

Seattle's Best Roasted Hazelnut

SBC's classic mocha is mixed with roasted hazelnut and coffee syrup topped with a crown of whipped cream, dusted with crushed hazelnuts, and finally embellished with snowflake candies reminiscent of a stoplight. Here, coffee is more celebrated with nutty undertones.

Seattle's Best Eggnog Frost

SBC's white chocolate mocha is uniquely combined with eggnog and cinnamon vanilla flavors topped with whipped cream and garnished with silvery candy beads. This is my favorite among the four with a nice balance of dulcet flavors and cinnamon spice.

In local coffee shop tradition, Seattle's Best releases its SBC 2014 Dream Journal which comes in four colors: brown, peach, charcoal gray, and purple (which is more like pink). It has a soft leather cover that has a lush feel. Engraved at the back is the logo of Seattle's Best, and the magnetic button in front sports the company's initials as well.

The Dream Journal has the usual monthly calendar with undated journal or note pages instead of the usual 2 or 3 days cramped into a single page as with other planners, thus giving you more freedom in terms of writing down whatever you want or need. The artwork is worthy of note; proof that much thought was put into this project. It also comes with a music CD compilation, a 2-drink coaster, a metal bookmark, cute little notepads, cool stickers, and monthly freebies, all these worth at least P3,000.

Seattle's Best Coffee currently sponsors 16 children from World Vision, and the proceeds of the SBC 2014 Dream Journal redemption will benefit these children, so it would be great to have all your support.
